Introduction

If ever you've - lazily, guiltily - bought ready-peeled, sliced, cubed fruit from the supermarket, and then wondered why you bothered, when you get home to discover the fruit is brightly hued but dimly flavoured, this is the solution. Anything, frankly, dunked into butterscotch sauce tastes good, and this is a fabulous everyday or even party pudding.
